John Wick is now an ever-expanding franchise, with announcements of another sequel and a spin-off film entitled The Ballerina, a comic-book series, and a video game in development. That impressive list expands once again with Starz developing a television series.
It’s being reported that a new television series entitled The Continental is in development at Starz. The series is named after the assassination organization that Wick works for. Keanu Reeves is expected to appear in the series, but not in the lead role. Chris Collins, who will serve as a showrunner, will pen the script, with Chad Staheliski set to direct the first episode. Starz revealed these details at the Television Critics Association.
Done in a way not to set up future films, John Wick received critical praise for the incredible world-building that the film had achieved. The world was built around an interesting economy of assassins. Judging by the name of the new series, it will likely revolve around the hotel that houses many of these assassins, which is most people’s favorite part about John Wick.
John Wick and John Wick: Chapter 2 are now available on streaming and home video!
